In the Vladimir region there was an incident involving minors. In the town of Kurlovo, Gus-Khrustalny district, three teenage girls severely beat a junior high school girl. Video of what happened was published in “VKontakte” to create a public outcry to prevent similar events from happening again and the perpetrators were punished.
Judging by the video, the beating of a girl (social networks claim she is 11 years old) takes place in daylight hours – possibly in a park or square. Three older girls (about 15 – 16 years old) were beating the younger girl with their hands and feet on the head and body and dragging her by the hair. They do not react to their victim’s cries and pleas to let her go. A primary school-aged boy is present in the video, simply observing what is happening. At least one person was left off-screen filming the beating.
After the video was published in social networks, users left hundreds of comments. Some wondered how this could happen in a small town where everyone knows each other – the population of Kurlovo is less than six thousand people. Others demanded that the aggressive teenagers and their parents be punished and offered help to the victim.
According to the Investigative Committee, the incident in Kurlovo occurred on August 3. The agency reported that an initial investigation into the incident is being carried out, during which the circumstances of the incident will be established. After that, a procedural decision will be made.
In addition, the situation is under the control of the Acting Governor Alexander Avdeev. In the telegram channel of the Vladimir region administration notes that so far the child has been diagnosed with bruises and abrasions. It remains to be found out whether there are no hidden injuries – the Department of Health is involved in solving this issue.
“Child abuse is a signal that there is a failure in upbringing. We will deal with the incident, correct the situation, “- said the head of the region.
On behalf of Avdeev, the regional commission on minors’ affairs went to the place.

It is reported that the participants of the conflict have been established and interviewed. Legal representatives of the teenagers brought to administrative responsibility for failure to fulfill their responsibilities for the upbringing of minors.
